Which leads me to again believe, when it comes down to it, it will be impossible to tell just WHO will unhold their Oath (OathKeepers.com) and who will break their Oath to feed their power-hunger…
A peaceful protest of a Planned Parenthood event in Columbus, Ohio, erupted in violence when an off-duty city police officer hired by the abortion group attacked a colleague who arrived on the scene at the request of pro-lifers, forcing civilians to call 9-1-1 for help.
The pro-life group Created Equal had sent 15 to 20 people to peacefully picket on the sidewalk in front of the Shadowbox Theater in Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 19.
Inside the theater, Planned Parenthood was holding an annual fashion show called Condom Couture 2011. The event is a fundraiser for the taxpayer-supported group that features fashion designed by area students made entirely out of condoms.
Columbus, OH — October 21, 2011 — On Wednesday, October 19, Mark Harrington of Created Equal along with other central Ohio pro-life advocates held a protest at Planned Parenthood (PP) of Central Ohio’s “Condom Couture 2011” at Shadowbox Live Theater. Sometime after arriving at the Planned Parenthood fundraiser, off duty Columbus Police Officer Jack Addington, who was hired by Planned Parenthood for event security, began harassing demonstrators which finally resulted in a physical assault against Criminal Information Unit Detective Roger Dickinson, seen in video in plain clothes.
“As is my custom, I approached Officer Addington and introduced myself,” Harrington told WND.
“I informed him that we were law-abiding citizens who had come to express our First Amendment rights and share the pro-life message with those attending the [Planned Parenthood] fundraiser. I explained that we would keep the sidewalk free to pedestrians.”
According to Harrington, Addington’s demeanor was noticeably hostile towards the group when the officer said, “You will need to keep moving.”
When told that the group would not be allowed to remain in one place and would have to constantly move, Harrington told WND that he tried to explain, “With all due respect, that is not the law regarding demonstrations of this nature.”
“I said, if that is the law, then you will need to inform the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ demonstrators to ‘keep moving’ and remove the encampment on the sidewalk in front of the state house.”
The officer replied, “This isn’t the state house.”
Harrington said that he informed the officer that his group would have no problem complying with any lawful order.
“I asked to see the law or ordinance that compels protesters to ‘keep moving’ when they are on a public sidewalk,” he said.
According to Harrington, the officer barked out, “Let me prove to you who’s in charge.”
Taking the statement as a physical threat, Harrington had the group comply with the officers’ command, but Harrington called someone he had turned to in the past for advice, another Columbus police officer, Detective Roger Dickenson.
“Detective Dickinson has in the past been helpful in resolving any issues and concerns we have had regarding the law and safety when protesting,” said Harrington.
“He told us to comply with Officer Addington’s commands until he could get there.”
When Dickenson arrived, Harrison said, “he told our group that it wasn’t necessary to keep moving, as we weren’t obstructing movement on the sidewalk anyway.”
Harrington said that the detective and security guard began talking, and all of a sudden “Officer Addington angrily disagreed with Detective Dickenson and began physically assaulting him.”
